UAC Permission for Win 7 Upgrades

Since a re-install of Win 7, everytime I boot I get a UAC pop up asking if I want to allow Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to make changes to my system. Even though I select NO it keeps coming up at each boot. Do I really need to have this program installed and/or how do I stop that from coming up each time?

I turned my UAC off. type in UAC and there will be a slider to go down to Never Notify, click OK. Reboot your system. Darrell

That's not recommended.

UAC in Windows 7 is a useful security tool. It's MUCH better for the OP to find the cause of it becoming active now.

You shouldn't advice your own bad solutions to others.

Re: pop up

Why not uninstall that program? Or find out why it's running (the Startup tab of MSCONFIG, maybe) and change that?
